Real Madrid 8 – 2 Deportivo La Coruña


Madrid, and their galaxy of stars, ran riot against Deportivo last night, winning 8-2 with Cristiano Ronaldo scoring his 27th career hat trick. Though Karim Benzema somehow managed not to score during this festival of goals, Gareth Bale got two, Rodriguez got one, and Chicharito Hernandez scored two beauties, including his debut goal for the club. Keep an eye out for the final goal, which swooped remarkably after taking a clipped deflection. With luck like that, Deportivo will have to chalk this up as being just one of the seasonal drubbings that Real inevitably dish out every year, a drubbing that they were unfortunate enough to be on the end of. Real, on the other hand, will relish this result, after their mediocre start in the league. Coming after the thrashing of FC Basel in the Champions League, Los Blancos are purring.

Here are the goals.
